I have been interested in taking a pottery class for a long time but I never found the right studio… until a couple of weeks ago.
At Kiln, in Aoyama, is a cozy cafe and gallery/store on the ground floor and a lovely pottery studio on the 2F.
I was at At Kiln before for coffee and love the place so it didn’t take me long to sign up for a hand-building pottery class and invite my friend Lori to join me.
Such a lovely studio!
The class lasted two hours and we got enough clay for two big bowls or plates or four smaller plates.
I choose to do two plates with the method “Tatara” that involves the use of molds. Once my plate was finished, it was time for decorating it with stamps and other available tools.
So many stamps to choose from!
So I got a little bit carried away …
I now know how much work it actually takes to produce a decent piece of pottery and I have to say I’m satisfied with my plates.
Voila! I’m picking them up in a few weeks ♡
You can find the information about At Kiln’s pottery classes in their website. They have classes on Weekdays (except Wednesday) and Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.
I’d like to thank At Kiln’ s staff who kindly let me shoot their lovely studio… ありがとうございます!!
